Dine On A Dime: Fuku Burger

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Okay, first things first… that is pronounced FOO-cue. Got that? Good. (Although let’s be honest, that’s not how you WANTED to pronounce it!)

Suzanne Marques reports from this little hamburger gem (1634 Cahuenga, Hollywood, 90028 323-464-3858)  that mixes big American beef flavors with Japanese inspired sauces and toppings.

Take the “Lucky Burger” for example. Your typical all-beef patty, American cheese, onion, pickles and bun…but this one has a wasabi mayo and Fuku sauce. Or the “Karai” — one spicy burger topped with pickled cucumbers, avocado cream, and habanero kabyaki. Hot! And if you don’t like beef, they have a crispy chicken offering with “crack” sauce.
